Whether you are a fan of Jeremy Corbyn or not, it's clear that a pretty serious topic has come to light and it is crucial that we don't allow it to be surpassed and undermined by people using it as an opportunity knock a political candidate down.
The optional segregation of women is actually counterproductive; it suggests that we are the temptation that needs to be removed from the harassment equation. Isn't it more productive to actually challenge harassment and objectification culture?
Are Cooper and Kendall the only women in this country who have never felt a hand creep onto their waist on the tube? Who've never had an erection launched into their lower back during rush hour? Who've never had a broom handle shoved up between their legs as they ascended the stairs at Tottenham Court Road?
I didn't count how many men stared, honked or hollered at me this morning. I wish I had, because I'm almost certain I've underestimated - I think the number is far higher than 20. It's not an unusual experience, it happens to me every day, but there was something about this morning that made me have to say something.
I was wondering whether or not I was making a big deal about it. Whether or not the act was actually sexist. And this is one of the biggest challenges we face regarding catcalling - whether it's a wolf whistle or a seemingly well-intentioned remark, if a man's comments about your appearance and sexuality makes you feel uncomfortable, then that is not okay.
Amy Schumer's new film Trainwreck perfectly captures, with equal measures of humour and poignancy, how the modern world of sex and love has become spectacularly screwed up.
Prostitution is technically already legal in the UK. The exchange of sexual services for money is completely legal but engaging in practises such as soliciting in a public place and curb crawling are not.
As someone who identifies as a black feminist, I've always had no doubt in my mind how I'd raise my daughter, should I have her, and much of this is put into practice as I interact with my many younger female relatives. But what about my son? Now that I'm 99% sure that I'm having a black boy, the thought of raising him has got me thinking.
We seldom have to choose outright between a love life and a career these days: it's more a case of little daily compromises. Who takes a day off when a child is sick? Who puts their own work to one side to help their partner through a challenging deadline?
It's been a weird and wonderful experience having my book, Lady Worsley's Whim, now known by the name of the BBC drama, The Scandalous Lady W become television. What's stranger still is that our lust for a tale about the extreme sexual antics of an heiress, a Tory MP and an officer is just as unquenchable now as it was in 1780s.
Considering that Kim is the most followed woman on Instagram and she and her family have monopolised the media so enormously, shouldn't we be glad that of all the people to achieve this, these are the messages young people are receiving from the Kardashians?
Even I was taken aback by Eminem's verse where he says the following little beauty; "Ain't no one safe from, non-believers there ain't none/I even make the bitches I rape cum." Yep. A grown man in 2015 said these words.
Let's not be under illusion here - menstruation is a bodily function. It a fluid - blood - that the body is rejecting because it is not pregnant. It doesn't have magical properties, it won't solve world peace and I wouldn't want it flowing down my legs anymore than I would want any other fluid.
The event was sold out, which is alarming. Extremism makes its impression on vulnerable, impressionable minds. I worry that it might be turning potential moderate young men, somewhat understandably fed up with the histrionics of some feminists into women-hating douchebags.
If my poem can remind event organisers and attendees that we would like to listen to both men and women on stage that would be great. Equality is an ongoing process, and who we choose to feature in the spotlight and in expert panels matters.
With the volume and influence of online tech publications and the fact that the industry is typically well engaged and represented on social media, this strong response to petty sexism is as predictable as the initial sexism was depressingly inevitable.
